Too Geeky?

Is using Mathematica to do the interpolation to figure out how much water and oats and salt to use when making three servings of oatmeal (aka "oats") too geeky? See, the instructions on the package (Publix brand) only cover one, two, and six servings, and the relationship is not linear (proportional).

Sometimes, it's okay to use an elephant gun to kill a fly.

And can one ever really be too geeky?
